We made it

The Mr comes home tonight. I am so excited I could hardly sleep last night. I have been really really tired. Luckily my mom has been here the last few nights so I have been able to get some much needed sleep.

I did not get nearly as much crafting done as I had hoped to. By the time I would get Colin to bed I was extremely tired myself. I have been using nap times for exercising or cleaning the house. Leaving me with little time leftover for cleaning the house.

Here are some photos from the last few days:

A crochet dishcloth, I think it is to frilly for a dishcloth and I don't like the striped yarn, It takes away from the design. I may try it again with some solid color yarn and see how it looks.

We went to the nursery with Sarah and the family. I have substituted buying fabric with buying plants :)

DSC_8416-1Another dishcloth, this one is a knit vine pattern. I think it turned out pretty well. I have a few mistakes here and there but I still like it. Pattern found on Ravelry.

Why all the dishcloths? I am/was going to make them for my mom for mother's day (she get's her new house today). I don't know if I will gift them or not. They are not great by any means. I think I will gift the vine dishcloth if I can make some more up to go with it. But I would like a pattern that works up a bit faster for me.

I love the last dishcloth and love the supplementing plants for fabric! :)

I will be shifting my Mr from providing the financial backing for my quilting obsession to my plant obsession also! LOL

Glad your Mr will be home and the pictures are just too much fun and remind me of all our lazy days while the cat was away!

OMG LIZ!

I don't know what was wrong w/my computer! For some reason it was stuck on you Decemeber posts and it wouldn't let me see anything new. So I thought that maybe you had taken a break when I didn't see any new posts. So SORRY!

Gosh I am glad to see everything that you have been doing! My apologies again!

XOXO,
Stefanie
